Tokyo zoo practices tiger escape drill
CBS TV – Feb. 23, 2011 TOKYO — Costumed staff at a Tokyo area zoo tried to imitate an escaping tiger on Tuesday as part of a drill to prepare staff for dealing with an escaped animal.

The best line in the report is: While the costume itself is significantly more yellow and somewhat more cartoon-like than a real tiger, those watching the drills were impressed at how seriously the staff involved dealt with the situation.

In previous years, the 3Yen covered this cosplay drill in the reports:
